What do you consider when putting an outfit together? Is it your top? Maybe it’s your choice of accessories?
At the end of the day, there’s no one way to go about putting together an outfit as there is a multitude of different factors that affect your overall look. With that being said, this also means that the smallest part of your outfit can also make a huge difference. One great example of this is your socks.
While they may seem trivial, your socks can actually change the entire look of your outfit. In hope of helping you understand how the humble sock can do this, we’ve put together a list of socks that make a statement merely by wearing them.
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that superheroes are now a cultural phenomenon. Gone are the days wherein comics and superheroes used to be a niche interest. Whether it be DC or Marvel, superheroes are more popular than they have ever been. Due to this, superhero merch has also become more mainstream. Whether it be superhero shirts or superhero-inspired sneakers, there are now countless ways to express your love and appreciation for superheroes and comic books.
Now, some of you may want something a little more subtle when it comes to expressing your interest in superheroes. This is where superhero socks come in. They are discreet enough to be worn in just about every occasion all while still being an effective indication of your love for comics and superheroes.
Branded socks are basically the definition of “making a statement”. By wearing socks made by a specific brand, you are effectively letting people know that you have fully bought into what a particular brand stands for.
A great example of this is socks made by sporting brands. Nothing screams “athlete” more than a person who's wearing Nike from head to toe. Now, if you’re going to go this route, be sure to not mix brands. This is especially true if the brands are competitors, as this will send a clashing message to whoever sees you. Basically, if you’re wearing Adidas socks then you better be wearing Adidas sneakers as well.
If you’re looking for something that’s on the eccentric side, then this may be for you. For people who want to make a fashion statement using their socks, why not try wearing mismatched socks? This goes against the norm and is a great way to express how bold and creative you are with your fashion choices.
If you want to take this a step further, you can go beyond just wearing differently coloured socks. Why not try wearing a purple polka dot sock with a leopard print sock to really push the boundaries on how people should be wearing socks. If you’re going to go this route, it would be best to wear the right bottoms to ensure that your socks will be visible.
Now, it’s important to note that this list isn’t meant to limit your choices when it comes to socks. This list is only meant to inspire you to be bold and creative with your choice of socks. Remember that the point of making a statement is expressing yourself and there are near limitless ways to do this.
